    With OutRun Online Arcade SEGA has come up with a nice game for only ten euro's. It looks nice, has an error here and there, but the soundtrack makes up for it. Players can surely enjoy this game for hours.
  2. Outrun Online Arcade offers just the thing that makes Outrun so great for a decent price. And on top of that the game has some delicious and relaxing multiplayer fun.

    If you've always fancied the idea of having the genuine OutRun arcade cabinet experience with added online support then OutRun Online Arcade does exactly what it says on the tin while managing to be a lot of fun to boot.

    A great game - obviously - but it's lacking in features already in the original Xbox port. [May 2009, p.104]

    Even at $10, we won't be taking another ride with OutRun until Sega serves up some substantial new content. [May 2009, p.80]

    before i start of about what i like and love about this game, i will tell you the bad news first, so we end with a good feeling. there are 2 before i start of about what i like and love about this game, i will tell you the bad news first, so we end with a good feeling. there are 2 bug's in the game when you play online. the first one can be done if you play with collissions on. the second place player can rub his front of the car to the first player's side. if he touches the car long enough, he will get a boost so far away, that player 1 can't even catch his slipstream ! the second one i guess most of you have seen on youtube, but at the forks of the road, suddenly a piece of floor dissapears, and your car gets stuck. this will not happen to you if you are the host, but other players can expirience it. also the game is a stripped down version from outrun 2 SP, as the turbo outrun music is missing, and also 5 ferrari's. all this to keep download size small, and the price at 800 points. the good news is the developpers are now aware of this, and will release a patch to end all trouble. also if the game sell's enough, they may release the outrun 2 tracks and the reverse tracks from sega ! so if you love outrun, buy it. the troubles will be dealt with, and more content is always welcome to such a good good feeling arcade racer. now the good news: on the 1 player game, everything that was missing on the outrun coast to coast game is in this one ! so the vulcano erupts if you finish outrun mode stage A, flower pettals will fall and doves fly across the screen if you finish outrun mode stage C, the rocket gets launched if you finish outrun mode stage D, and coulorred confetti will fall down if you finish outrun mode stage E. also every effect from the arcade is here, and even been updated. so the low hanging clowds, the sun and lens flare when the sun shines in your face, and the higher resolution all helps creating a even more magical sega outrun mood. for me, this is a dream come true. even now i got the full 200 gamerscore from the game, i will be playing this time and time again. and online really adds to the fun, especially if the problems got solved.

It's so incredibly playable, and although it's missing much of the 'coast to coast' retail release for xbox /ps2 /pc, it's online play, and HD graphics make up for it! Awesome.. my advice? get this right away and also get the coast to coast version for PC (or xbox or ps2) as well! Full Review »

    I love OutRun2/SP, but this is disappointing. Why so little mention in reviews of the EVIL slowdown?! Certain stages (especially a couple of I love OutRun2/SP, but this is disappointing. Why so little mention in reviews of the EVIL slowdown?! Certain stages (especially a couple of final stages) have slowdown that's so bad it totally throws you off your game - no way can that be good. Sumo can't have taken much pride in their work when a cut-down port of their last-gen classic runs so much worse on more powerful hardware. Don't even think about trying to sell me those missing OutRun2 tracks as DLC until you've fixed the slowdown! Full Review »
